Dubai One TV presenter discusses she-wolves, star signs and becoming Dubai’s answer to Lately Chelsea
Did you always want to be on TV?
Yes – absolutely. I was always very animated as a kid, and always impersonating people. I leaned towards drama and acting. I’m a Gemini – we’re the communicators of the zodiac. My entire life, people have said to me, ‘You’re going to be on TV one day.’
How long has your show, City Wrap, been running for?
About three months now. This is my first TV thing. At first, being on camera was very intimidating, but I got used to it because I’d been working with Dubai One for a while. Now it just goes over my head.
What’s City Wrap all about?
week City Wrap recaps the best of ’s social, cultural and entertainment events. We talk about everything from awards to exhibitions and music festivals. Each week we have a different line-up of guests to give us the lowdown on the top social spots, and Time Out’s editor Ross Brown is one of our favourite regulars. Dubai
Who is your personal hero?
My mum. She’s a single parent: she raised me and my sister by herself. She put us through the best schools, universities and provided everything. I come from a family of chicks: my mum, my aunts, my sister, a wolf pack of she-wolves.
City Wrap is on Dubai One every Friday at 6.30pm
